I bought this coffee pot approximately 6 months ago from Target. Well, this is how I got this model. The first one I purchased didn't work at all when I got it home (a totally different model number). When I went to exchange, Target was all out of them. So Target, which I praise! Offered me this model BVMC-TJX36 as a replacement. I was happy with that. BUT, it only lasted about five months, if that. It turns on, the lights light up, but does not perk, nothing comes out at all. Disappointed in this China made crap they are selling. DISPOSABLE coffee pots that last less than half a year… COME ON!!! I'm definitely switching to a different brand, the last good one I had lasted 5 years, and it was NOT Mr. Coffee brand either. Never again! Lost my business!
